Cashmere and cognac
On The River | Michigan | 10/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The great Shirley Horn passed away on Thursday and I'm listening to her now as I write this. A reviewer said that she had a whispery voice that conjured cashmere and cognac and they were right on. This CD happens to be one of my favorites, just Shirley and her piano....Should I Surrender a perfect example. She will be missed."
Shirley Horn's voice is like dark chocolate and black velvet

"I disagree with the gentleman from Rio on this album. This CD is the reason I fell in love with Shirley Horn after hearing it on PBS a few years back. My favorite cut is "Should I Surrender?" It takes me back to the a time of falling in love and how wonderful but dangerous it feels. This is music for the ages! Ms. Horn's artistry will be missed.
Better Somehow Than Perfection

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Carlos's opinion notwithstanding, this is certainly among Shirley Horn's finest achievements...if NOT her finest. Given "Here's to Life," I realize such audacity is tantamount to blaspheme but I swear, despite that CD's undeniable artistic perfection, I've grown to play "Loving You" more frequently.

The title song, Dreamy, Love Dance, In the Dark, and the absolutely amazing Kiss and Run are among my favorites, but the list continues: The Island is an extended and transcendent piece of musical architecture with a faraway tropical pulse that is very much worth eight minutes of your time. Especially through headphones.

This inspired original collection from 1997 closes with the oh-so-slowly evolving All of a Sudden My Heart Sings. Stick with it, and "Loving You," and yours will too.

Thrilling. Meticulous. Most highly recommended.
